After shuffling the deck and playing Auston Matthews with William Nylander and Mitch Marner with John Tavares Sunday afternoon in Carolina, Sheldon Keefe has reverted to his old combinations ahead of tonight's game against Vegas. However, Matthews and Marner will have Alex Kerfoot flanking them on the left wing instead of Michael Bunting.

Bunting finds himself on the third line along with Pierre Engvall and Calle Jarnkrok, while Nick Robertson earned himself a promotion alongside Tavares and Nylander after a solid game on Sunday. Robertson has 5 points in 7 games so far this season with the Leafs, which is just one less than Bunting has in 13 games. As Bunting continues to struggle to start the season, maybe a demotion to the third line will help him get back to basics and find his rhythm.
Keefe left his newfound fourth line of Aston-Reese/Kampf/Malgin intact as they have played very well together so far and have generated a good number of offensive chances while also playing defensively responsible hockey. Having a fourth line that he can play more than 7 or 8 minutes per night is something Keefe hasn't had so far in his tenure and it will help in the long run.
